An emerging choice for site protection

August 2012 News

Market limitations for road blockers are leading to greater growth opportunities for rising bollards. In a report published by IMS Research titled the World Market for Vehicle Entrance Control Equipment, global revenues for rising bollards are forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4,4%, nearly double that of vehicle blockers for the period 2011 to 2015.

Report author and analyst at IMS Research Adi Pavlovic comments: “The decision to install a rising bollard over a vehicle blocker depends greatly on the level of security required, the available space, and aesthetic appeal. Rising bollards offer a more versatile blend with building aesthetics, require less space to install and fit well around high pedestrian traffic areas.”

Opportunities for rising bollards within high-risk sites remain limited with many site protection managers preferring the durability of road blockers to the aesthetic appeal of a rising bollard. However, following a raft of certifications, a greater shift toward rising bollards has begun. Pavlovic continues: “Vehicle blockers have been the dominant solution in high-security applications for many years, but since rising bollards have become K-12 rated these products are being considered more often for the same projects. They have the equivalent ability to stop a moving vehicle as road blockers, while offering a flexible solution in terms of space and installation.”

While any full replacement of road blockers is unlikely in the foreseeable future, it is hard to ignore the opportunities.
